STP 09-26-2016: Rainmakers Move out of the Region

Issue Date: Monday, September 26th, 2016
Issue Time: 9:00 AM MDT

Summary:

The deep trough that has been affecting weather throughout Colorado for the last several days has finally pushed off to the east taking along with it any chances of precipitation yesterday. Any moisture that was advected by the disturbance to the south and west remained south of the region, giving us some respite yesterday from the rain and storminess of the last few days. Clockwise flow associated with a High Pressure ridge that is moving over most of the western portion of the country brought cool and dry northerly flow at its leading edge, resulting in temperatures that were below average as lows dipped down to the low 30’s and upper 20’s and highs barely made it into the 70’s in the Eastern Plains and mid- to upper-60’s throughout most of the High Country.

No precipitation was reported and no flash flooding occurred yesterday.
